Faking It

  1. what’s lovely about it is that it’s genuinely funny, while most philosophy blogs are either hyperserious, narcissistic/wankitudinous, or both.

  2. WE would all rather put in the small amount of time necessary to fake it, rather than the enormous amount of time necessary to really learn something, so you are doing the world a great service. I think…Anyway, at the very least, you provided food for thought for many. Thanks.

  3. It’s not that we need advice; we need entertainment. These are dark times (eg, these are 100 undergraduate intro essays…)

  4. for me funny is Kant’s definition of laughter: the sudden transformation of a strained expectation into nothing. precise, but yet so away from its subject matter.

  5. Besides the Monty Python skit where philosophers are playing soccer, I never thought I would laugh SO HARD at philosophy jokes. It’s no wonder those posts are your most read!
